"Songs That Saved My Life" as written by and Matthew Devine Jonathan Radtke....
Turn up the radio
I need it now more that ever
It's the first snow of the year
And something in the atmosphere is coming here
Froze our memories again
Soon you'll forget but I just can't
I remember
I remember everything
All the times when no one ever came to get me
All the nights when I was scared
And when it got to weird
It was the song that saved me
I remember, remember everything
All the tracks that shaped and changed me
Inside of speeding cars
And lying on your floor
When we were living in a broken world

We turned it up and the we watched the city burn
I remember, remember everything
All the times when no one ever came to get me
All the nights when I was scared
And when it got too weird
And I can't forget
And I can't forget
And I won't forget
Froze in our memories again
Soon you'll forget but I just can't
I remember, remember everything
All the times when no ever came to get me
All the nights when I was scared
And when it got too weird
It was the sogns that saved my life
It was the songs that saved me

    General CommentBut don't forget the songs
    That made you cry
    And the songs that saved your life
    -"Rubber Ring", The Smiths

    I think this song is an answer to Morrisey's plea to remember the songs that helped you grow up, even if you've outgrown them; letting him know that he remembers.

    General CommentMy thoughts exactly, about remembering the songs/artists that helped you get through.

    General CommentKind of inspired me to go back & listen to the songs that saved my life as well.
    these boys are amazing, they're gonna make it huge because they are uncomparable to any artist out there today.

    General CommentI agree with The Smiths reference. Only, there's one little line that seems rather specific: "All those times when no one ever came to get me..." If the writer was referring to a girlfriend or buddy, he'd probably say "to pick me up".

    My first impression on hearing that one line was of a memory of a child waiting for a parent to pick them up who never shows. They are waiting there at the curb, listening to their walkman (or ipod, depending on your age), watching it get darker and colder, and wondering why they were forgotten again and how they should get home. And thank God they have their music, at least.

    This happened to me several times in Jr High school, and listening to this song brought it all back.

    General CommentI'll remember everything
    All those times when no one ever came to get me

    i can relate to that so well. i used to do clubs and stuff after school and my parents would almost never pick me up. i had to get rides from the councilors, and people there with me eventually started asking their parents everyday if they could pick me up if i needed a ride. teachers were always asking me if i need help... haha. i kind of did actually. but i get over it, you know?

    all the nights that i was scared.

    i can also relate to that, my parents can get crazy sometimes. its sad when a kid has to lock themselves in a bathroom.

    i can relate to basically the whole song, because music got me through ALL of it. it still does. i dont think i could live without music. i need it almost everyday. its like when you listen to music, you get in a different world, like the world of the song. and then it helps you escape the hell that you are actually in.

    General CommentI love this song. It's exactly how I feel. Without my favorite bands & songs, I don't know where I'd be today.

    General Commentthis IS one of the songs that saved my life. pretty much every one of kill hannah's songs is. but then, i have an unbelievably huge number of those songs. music has gotten me through all sorts of crap. i relate to this song so much, and it's so gorgeous. without music, i have a lot of problems inside myself (i'm kind of my own worst enemy, that type of thing--i'm destroying myself from the inside out), but the music makes them go away.
